    Interesting question this. Notts CC have had a temporary crossing using portable equipment (I think)on Kegworth Road in Gotham for ages, must be more than 12 months. No lining whatsoever. How long could something like that be justified.

    To be fair, you’re covered with the primary signal if the local drunks decide to partake of a bit souvenir gathering… but for the sake of a bit of thermo, I’d be inclined just to slap some lines down anyway. Should only be a few quid!

    Thanks Chris.

    The signals have just gone in and I’m now told that they’ll only be in place for 12 months, not 18.

    I’ll see how the signs last up to the local neds and if there’s a problem, I’ll put STOP lines in.

    Personally, if I knew they were going to be in for that long I would have put the stop lines in when they were first erected. That said, how much life have they got left?

    TSRGD says:

    “(3) Where no stop line has been provided in conjunction with light signals or the stop line is not visible, references in relation to those signals to the “stop line” are:

    (a) in a case where the sign shown in diagram 7011, 7011.1, 7011.2 or 7027 is placed in conjunction with the light signals, to be treated as references to that sign; and

    (b) in any other case, to be treated as references to the post or other structure on which the primary signals are mounted.”

    … so you’re covered with the signs.

    Hi all,

    Needing a bit of advice on something…

    I’ve a set of long term temporary signals in place as part of a much larger non-signals related project. They’ve to be in place for approximately 15-18 months and comprise proper Siemens heads sitting in NAL concrete blocks all operating through a 950 controller that’s hooked into my RMS fault monitoring system.

    The query that’s been asked is should these be marked up on site with STOP lines or, because they’re still temp lights, will signs to 7011.1 do along with all the other requsite temporary signing?
